Introducing 'Ask Socrates': Your Weekly Philosophical Guide: Life's Inquiries - Exploring Perspectives with Socratic Wisdom at and Beyond"  Vol I, Number 1. September 5, 2023  Published here each Tuesday. 


Greetings, seekers of wisdom,

We are thrilled to introduce a new and enriching endeavor, "Ask Socrates," a weekly exploration of life's perplexities guided by the timeless wisdom of the great philosopher himself. Embarking on a journey we fondly call "Chat GPT & Me," this series aims to bring the insightful spirit of ancient philosophical thought into the modern age. Think of it as our unique take on the legendary advice columns, such as "Dear Abby" and "Ann Landers," infused with the Socratic perspective that has enlightened minds for centuries.

In the spirit of Socratic dialogue, we invite you to join us as we traverse the complexities of existence, offering guidance and perspective that transcend time and culture. Each week, we will delve into a variety of questions, conundrums, and contemplations, exploring the profound and the everyday, the philosophical and the practical.

Our esteemed guide through this journey is none other than Socrates himself, who shall lend his insight to matters that intrigue and perplex us all. From matters of love and life decisions to the nature of virtue and the pursuit of happiness, we'll dive into the depths of human experience and understanding.

We invite you, our fellow seekers of knowledge, to be an integral part of this dialogue. Your questions, musings, and ponderings are essential to our shared exploration. To participate, simply send your inquiries to Socrates through John Scott Wren, the steward of this endeavor at Wren College. Reach out at, a virtual haven where the pursuit of knowledge and understanding is celebrated, much like the teachings Socrates espoused in his time.

But our aspirations go beyond the digital realm. We envision this series gracing the pages of your local community newspaper or magazine, enriching the lives of readers with the timeless wisdom that Socratic philosophy imparts. To this end, we encourage you to share these thought-provoking pieces with the publishers of your favorite community publications, sparking conversations that can touch lives on a local level.

In the spirit of unity and enlightenment, let us embark on this journey together. Let us challenge assumptions, explore perspectives, and embrace the essence of Socratic thought in our pursuit of understanding life's mysteries. Join us in our mission to make philosophy a guiding light in the realm of advice columns, transcending the ordinary to explore the extraordinary.

Stay curious, and remember, as Socrates said, "An unexamined life is not worth living." Let us examine, explore, and evolve, with the wisdom of the ages as our compass.

In curiosity and camaraderie,
